Its primary objectives are to examine the challenges involved in analysing unilateral conduct of dominant firms and firms with substantial market power, facilitate greater understanding of the issues involved in analysing unilateral conduct, and to promote greater convergence and sound enforcement of laws governing unilateral conduct the group continues to develop a “workbook” on the analysis of unilateral conduct. The workbook is based on the Group’s conduct work, recommended practices on dominance, and reports on the objectives of unilateral conduct laws, assessment of dominance, and state-created monopolies. To date, the Working Group developed an outline of topics to be addressed and drafted chapters on the Objectives of Unilateral Conduct Laws, the Assessment of Dominance/Substantial Market Power, Predatory Pricing Analysis, Exclusive Dealing/Single Branding and Tying and Bundling.
